Going Green: How Windows Boost Energy-Efficiency at Home

Windows are an element of the home that is often taken for granted. We pick and buy them to brighten our homes during dark, gloomy days and allow cool air in when the summer season feels too hot and humid. However, some homeowners may give little thought about improving energy-efficiency in their living spaces using the best replacement windows. Green or energy-efficient windows and designs can significantly boost your home’s aesthetic appeal, resale value and comfort.

 

Going Green: How Windows Boost Energy-Efficiency at Home

 

What Makes an Energy-Efficient Window?

A good home has well-made windows that reduce energy consumption and do not negatively impact the natural environment. If you want to look to install new energy-efficient windows for your home, here are the components or qualities you should look for.

1. Multiple Panes: New innovations in the window industry detailed that in order for windows to help reduce energy costs at home, switching from single-pane to double-pane is the way to go. This is to effectively slow down the transfer of heat and cold between the interior and exterior.

2. Low-E Coating: Home window replacement contractors apply low-E coating to their windows to make them more energy-efficient. Low-E glass was developed to minimize the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that comes through your glass. It also can prevent heat loss in winter and high temperatures from entering your home in summer.

3. Low Conductivity Frames: Aluminum and steel are window materials that can conduct heat and cold. Instead, you can opt for our patented Fibrex® frames. Fibrex has superior thermal insulating properties that can help you save on energy bills.

Why Your Home Needs Energy-Efficient Windows

Any reputable windows installer will attest that green remodeling is more than energy efficiency and energy savings. It can also enhance the character of your home since replacement windows come in a variety of colors, finishes, and styles. You can also say goodbye to sun damage because window glazings reduce the level of ultraviolet rays that get through the glass. Ultimately, consistent temperatures inside the home make for more comfortable living, preventing health issues that poor, drafty windows can bring.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
